Fresh Cranberry Sauce

Have you ever had cranberries that did not come out of a can?  If not, you are missing out!  This cranberry sauce has only three ingredients including water, and is a delightful and easy way to enjoy a classic fall flavor.  Gone will be the days of cranberries being a side dish for only Thanksgiving!  Serves 8.

1 12 oz. bag fresh cranberries
1 cup sugar
1 cup water

Put all ingredients in a medium saucepan.  Make sure there is room in the saucepan for sauce to 'bubble up' once it gets cooking.  Put over medium-high heat.

Allow sauce to boil.  After a while, you will hear the cranberries start to pop.  Wait until the popping dies down, and continue to boil for 3 more minutes.  Remove from heat, and allow to cool.

Cranberry sauce can be enjoyed hot or cold.
